We took our time and did alot of homework on treadmills. Shopped the internet and the local sporting goods stores. I can save you about 2 weeks here. This is basically the same treadmill that I bought about 10 years ago. It has been greatly updated and modernized without the price getting stupid. Actually this newer model cost about $200 less. Please read the directions first. The directions say 2 adults, they are not kidding. I got the box in the house ok but it takes 2 adults! This machine, like the earlier model, is built to last. It is not the cheap stuff that is imported. A cheap lightly built treadmill is a waste of money. If your going to actually use it be sure and read the weight capacity. Always "over buy" on capacity by at least 75 lbs or more. OK; putting it together, WOW, very detailed, take your time. It took us about 45 minutes to finish assembly. The only thing that was tuff was plugging in the connector to the console. There is no extra slack to work with. I simply unscrewed the factory wire holder to allow some slack. I think NordicTrack should give 1 or 2 more inches here, but certainly no problem. The "box" type holders on each side are very handy for light items like TV remote, hand exercise devices etc. Possibly a small water bottle, I never really got that though. Water around electricity is risky to say the least. We simply don't do it. The tread floor is very large and very easy to move around on. This machine is very quiet & comfortable. Like the cushioned floor. Wear good supportive shoes! The electronics are awesome. Listen I looked at $2500+ machines, don't waste your money. I looked at $500 machines, they are made in China=junk. I also bought the 5 year in house warranty. I usually don't purchase extended warranties but this seemed logical. 5 years at about $50ish per year and they fix it right here or replace it. I'm in. I used my last Nordic Track for years. I kept it clean and sold it for almost what I paid for it. I am never selling this 1. We both love it ! Remember made in the USA still means alot!
I am sure it will do the exercise just fine, but the assembly process was terrible. The tools included were not just bad, but nearly unuseable. The directions have several spots where you must remove and save or discard screws that were in place. and the display assembly just diddnt want to line up. I have seen reviews stating an hour or 2 to assemble, but set aside at least 3 and hope your marriage can survive the process.
This treadmill is a great addition to a home gym. Sturdy, but easy to move when assembled. Great, precise assembly directions make a quick job of putting together. Speakers work wonderful to play your own music. Quick response from button controls for speed and incline. Nice wide belt amd long enough for big strides when running. Easy fold up when not in use. Gym quality in your home!
2.75 HP motor, 10 MPH speed, smart maps, power incline, heart monitor, i-pod compatible
I'm glad I went with this model after reading other reviews. It has been working perfect! I am heavy set & my kids are runners so it suites all our needs.Sears delivered & set up was also perfect.
The Sears rep told us it would easily take under and hour to set up and that is not true. I work in the trades and this took considerably longer to put together. After powering up, we noticed that the display isn't working properly, so now we are going to see how the warranty process will be.
Good price. Owned for about 6 months and used a couple times a week. Does exactly wht i need it for. A little noisy but easier on my knees then jogging outside.
Very good treadmill, only recommendation, make the louvers for the fan adjustable. If you use the middle of the belt, the fan will not blow on you. I use a floor fan.
i bought mine in a box and had to put it together. some parts were tougher than others to align and tighten,however when i was through with it i placed it where it will be most of the time and took a little walk on it. everything worked perfectly and it looks very good, even better than the picture.
